When decorating the home, you may choose to leave the ceiling bare and empty or you can liven it up to achieve a festive look. Consider having Christmas lights, colorful buntings or banderitas, and even colorful paper lanterns.

If you already have a copy of our October issue, we're sure that you've seen the paper rosette added in the daughter's bedroom of the Pescheux Home. Create a similar piece with the help of this fun project!

Materials:

  • 8 20" x 30" sheets of Japanese paper per flower 
  • Floral wire (available at craft shops)
  • Scissors

How-to:

  • Layer eight sheets of Japanese paper together
  • Make an accordion with 1 1/2-inch folds, starting from the bottom working towards the top
  • Place floral wire at the center of the Japanese paper and twist to hold in place
  • Use scissors to cut the edges
  • Carefully separate the layers of Japanese paper, pulling each one away from the center
  • Fluff the layers to create volume.
